MSI Wind Top AE1900 touchscreen nettop official

MSI have officially announced their latest touchscreen nettop all-in-one, the MSI Wind Top AE1900.  First spotted on the company's Japanese site back in February, the 18.5-inch nettop has a single-core Intel Atom 230 processor, up to 2GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive, together with a DVD burner.

 

The 16:9 display runs at WSXGA resolution and has an integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam, stereo speakers and microphone.  Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, gigabit ethernet, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, audio in/out, four USB 2.0 ports and a modem. 

According to MSI, the Wind Top AE1900 requires just 45W at full-load.  Now that's partially because of the low-power Atom processor, but if you're looking for an always-on kitchen PC for basic web-browsing, media playback, messaging and - perhaps most importantly - you want it to look like an old Apple Cinema Display, this could be the nettop all-in-one for you.  No word on availability or pricing as yet.
